Cool Down with an Overwatch Ana Snow Owl Skin Cosplay
Redditor imomushi8 chose a character from Overwatch for her first attempt at cosplay. With so many available character and skin combos in the game, I imagine it’s not easy to choose which outfit to replicate; she picked Ana’s snow owl skin. She used neoprene for part of the costume and sealed it with Mod Podge before applying acrylic paint; she also used denim, sweatshirt fabric, and fake leather. She says:
I made pretty much all of this from scratch, including the mask and rifle. I had to cut some corners on the outfit to get it ready in time for PAX East last week (though each of those ~200 “feathers” were hand-cut and -painted).
I didn’t have time to make her backpack, so I used an old leather purse (that I also made by hand! but years ago)
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
